Reminiscing Lyrics

Artist: The Little River Band

The Little River Band
(Graham Goble)

Friday night, it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate and I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right
How to tell you girl
I wanna build my world around you
Tell you that it's true
I wanna make you understand I'm talkin' about a lifetime plan

That's the way it began, we were hand in hand
Glenn Miller's Band was better than before
We yelled and screamed for more
And the Porter tunes (Night and Day)
Made us dance across the room
It ended all too soon
And on the way back home I promised you'd never be alone

Hurry, don't be late, I can hardly wait
I said to myself when we're old
We'll go dancing in the dark
Walking through the park and reminiscing

(Instrumental break)

Friday night, it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate and I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right
Now as the years roll on
Each time we hear our favorite song
The memories come along
Older times we're missing
Spending the hours reminiscing

Hurry, don't be late, I can hardly wait
I said to myself when we're old
We'll go dancing in the dark
Walking through the park and reminiscing

From: "David Hayman">

by Dan on 2/8/2009 2:37pm

by laineybelle on 3/8/2009 2:09pm
OMG. I love this song. It takes me back. Dont think it was ever a hit in Great Britain but I remember Dave Lee Travis used to give it some airplay on radio one back in the day. One of my favourite songs for sure.
by Ian on 3/9/2009 8:10am
Glen Frey of The Eagles once said "this is the best singing band in the world " and this song proves it

I just sang it out loud to my dog. Think i scared him!! ha ha I loved that song in the 70's!!
by kiyod on 4/21/2009 11:48pm
i love this song. i am reminiscing of my past with this song
by nick on 7/10/2009 5:45pm
that song is a masterpiece i can tell that and i'm 13 one of the best songs ever written
by defenderman on 7/12/2009 1:05pm
Gorgy Porgy obviously doesn't have any positive romantic memories. Huh. I love this song. I always dance with my wife when it comes on at a wedding. It was our song when we got married. How's that for reminiscing?
by Matt on 7/21/2009 11:36am
This and a couple other songs are the first ones I can recall ever hearing. Another was ... funny, I can't recall them right now. :) They'll come back.

Anyway, this song always seemed to evoke an incredible feeling of nostaligia in me despite the fact that none of the experiences described in it can I even remotely relate to my life. I mean, hell, I am only 41, and my mrs. and I did not get together in any way shape or form as described in the song. Glenn Miller? Wouldn't know him if I met him on the street. Yet even at a very young age, this song had this effect. The musical style generally does not appeal to me at all. And yet....

Reincarnation? This kind of thing makes me believe that the Hindus got that right.
by Bobby D. on 7/22/2009 6:06pm
John "the Voice" Farnham's haunting voice, the great guitar work and great background vocals harmony make this a true and timeless classic
by tophy26 on 7/29/2009 2:11am
its the best, nothing compares
by Luke on 9/24/2009 1:55am
There is a great john farnham version on youtube. LIve in melbourne. Just love his version. But there is something about the simplicity Glenn Shorrock brings to it!
by Raquel from Uruguay on 12/14/2009 9:12pm
suspended in the air just to hear it, brings the smell of dusk at night,walking in a park forever lost in the past milennia.
by SC on 12/23/2009 7:14am
Love the song and the lyrics.
"I wanna build my world around you"
I wanna make you understand I'm talkin about a lifetime plan.
Great LRB.....still Reminiscing
by Jon in Minnesota on 2/12/2010 10:50am
Good Valentines song guys... i'm just saying!
by Daniel in Ca on 2/13/2010 1:32am
This was my fiance and my song in the summer of 78. She was killed in a plane crash that September. I'll never forget her or this song.. Peace
by by Kip on 3/12/2010 1:26pm
Hey Georgy Porgy if you look like your name I bet you couldn't sing a single note of this song right. Sniff dirt you pillock!!!
by tim on 4/3/2010 5:23am
Daniel- tragic mate....i cant imagine your pain. But what a fantastic song to remember your love by. john lennon himself rated this as the greatest song he'd heard.
by Brad on 4/24/2010 3:15pm
I agree. This song is a masterpiece.
The vocals are by Glen Sherrock. John Farnham joined the band later. I can honestly say that Farnham's version from 1983 (youtube) blew me away. John Farnham is unknown in the U.S so it was the first time Id had the pleasure of hearing him
by Badger Dave on 5/17/2010 9:23pm
One of the greatest songs ever written and performed.
by Xtr on 5/31/2010 11:58am
i listen to this song every night b4 i go to sleep.. very nice song
by Peter on 7/24/2010 6:28am
your lyrics are off. It goes like this..."and Cole Porter's tune, Night and Day, made us dance...
by MP on 8/5/2010 5:26am
Glen Shorrock is the best voice Australia has ever produced. Full stop.
by beththechef on 8/5/2010 9:02am
Love love love this song. I just ordered the CD from Amazon of LRB's Greatest Hits. Can't wait to crank it in the car.
by rudy lozano on 8/27/2010 9:22pm
love love love the vocals
by rafanan76 on 9/3/2010 1:56am
.....what is there to say about this song except - perfection is one of those songs you take a drive for just to play it in repeat and sing along
.....this song evokes the romantic memories we've all(in some way or another)had or will hopefully have... - perfection
by hetty on 9/9/2010 10:04am
this song brought back great memories. saw the band played a few weeks back in norfolk, connecticut
by monkeybrains on 9/17/2010 8:07pm
This song makes me wanna make out wit my man. Therefore, it is gay.
by fritz_tingson on 11/17/2010 7:00am
LRB is amazing! love to lestin to this song while driving my cab along boulevard highway!
by Big Diamond on 11/26/2010 4:58am
Bad Azz Song...Smooth!
by Ryan on 12/14/2010 2:07pm
Could listen to this all day.
by Jin on 3/17/2011 9:28pm
I never could understand the Glenn Miller reference. Glenn Miller died during WWII. How could these people from 1978 be dancing to Glenn Miller's band? The style of the song has nothing to do with Glenn Miller's style.
by dindo olamit on 3/18/2011 10:40pm
one of my favorite song.
by wuwei on 5/8/2011 1:08am
I always took the Glenn Miller reference as though the songwriter was writing from the perspective of someone older (parents?). The reminiscing (taking place in the mid-1970s) is about the big band era of the 1930s. And by the way, Porter's Night and Day is an awesome song too. (I'm partial to Sinatra's version).
by What's in a Name on 8/3/2011 1:42pm
by Robert on 8/6/2011 11:48pm
Sounds like he is singing about his parents as he makes the Glen Miller reference. Great song!
by syberia on 8/31/2011 2:00am
it's really a nice song & it reminds me a lot. memories from the past.
by Babybel on 9/9/2011 9:35am
Takes me right back to the late 70's - was such a nice change from horrible, horrible disco!
by rmk lobo on 11/10/2011 12:27am
I'm reminiscing
by Ramon on 3/11/2012 2:18pm
I listened to this beautiful melody for the first time in the early 80s while traveling through Texas, and got absolutely trapped by it. Ever since that time, I have been one of the most fervient admirers of this remarkable band and have collected most of their albums (have you all also heard "Light Of Day?" Just divine!) . This is REAL MUSIC, not like today's, so decadent and insustantial. Thank you for reading this.
by Bob on 4/16/2012 8:33am
I always liked this song, but I had trouble understanding the words "Glen Millers band" I kept thinking I was hearing "Ben Miller or Ben Willer" I am glad to say that your website solved the mystery. Thank you
by dharam singal on 7/7/2012 1:54am
its the best, great lrb.....
by sk8tuff on 10/17/2012 5:11am
back in the day love this song soooooo much
by efratra on 12/29/2012 11:35pm
this one brings to me a wonderful moments in my childhood when the people had soul and was more natural
by on 6/29/2013 6:47am
...And KTLA proudly presents, The Family Film Festival, with your host, Tom Hatten.
by Reddy on 10/4/2013 1:27pm
This is a song that brings wonderful memories of my youth and young love. Time is so precious! If I only knew then what I know now, how different would the world be?
